A cultivar developed in 1968 and released in 1978 from Brewer's Gold by open pollination in Idaho. An open pollination means that the Male hop is unknown. The alpha acid content is relatively high 10-14% but its co-humulone content and its beta acid range are also high. The bitterness is clean and well balanced. Great general purpose bittering hop with citrus flavors. Can be used in most English-style and American Ales. Good sub for Nugget.
